At what point does an experience get bombarded with so many distractions that the original experience is longer a pure "experience." Is multi-tasking something to be revered? Today on a brief episode of the Spiritual Spiral, I begin by talking about a recent bike ride and the physical and mental benefits of exercise. While walking up and down the Santa Monica stairs, I wonder what happens if you're texting or listening to music or even holding a phone while engaging in exercise. Are you still capable of reaping any of the mental benefits of exercise if you're glued to a technological device? And how often do we unknowingly risk our lives by paying too much attention to our phones. I also talk about the new documentary that came out about Val Kilmer entitled, Val. On the one hand, the movie is certainly well-made and pulls at the heart strings but I couldn't help but think about our culture's strange obsession with actors. Why do we lionize actors so much and shouldn't we instead be paying more respect to the directors and writers in the film industry?
